  • “YUMMY! This rice was enjoyed as part of our Mexican dinner last night.No complaints about this recipe at all.I did add a bit of chili powder and cumin for our personal taste preferences.I really liked the fact I could toss it in the oven to cook and not have to babysit it while it cooked on the stove-top. Thanks for posting, bert.”

  • “This is the first recipe I have made off this site. It was great. I made the 6 servings and we will have leftovers. Great flavor, very easy to make. I left out the cayenne since I used spicy tomatoes. I cooked this in my toaster oven and it was PERFECT. I already shared it with a few friends.”

  • “Very good recipe.Easy and lots of flavor. Made it just as is except the green pepper (personal taste).”
